Gunpowder was made on accident during the Tang Dynasty, when someone mixed 75 parts of saltpeter, 10 parts sulfur, and 15 parts charcoal when an explosion happened to an open flame.
They would stuff gunpowder into bamboo sticks and when lit, it would explode out of the holes in bamboo, due to the overheating. The fireworks also brought hope to the society, they were thought to warn off the evil spirits in Ancient China.
Fireworks may be bad for the environment however, they are a symbol of pride and happiness for a country. Fireworks bring joy to people and also provide jobs for the manufactures, traveling companies, business, etc. Fireworks are used across the globe to celebrate all sorts of different events, just like in Ancient China when they were thought to warn off evil spirits.
